Please don’t Hate me!!

After potatoes and spaghetti, bananas might just be the most misunderstood food in America. The mainstream media (i.e. magazines, fitness tv shows, and diet books) tells us to shun bananas because they are: A. High in calories B. Starchy C. High in carbs Once again, I feel compelled to argue against the media. On a recent post, […]

Baby Got Back

This is my car with its top off: And this is my car from the side: But here is my car from the back: You know what, Stan, if you want me to wear 37 pieces of flair, like your pretty boy over there, Brian, why don’t you just make the minimum 37 pieces of […]


Every time I hear the word “brilliant” I think of the Guinness commercial from a few years ago. What is so brilliant? Oh, just wait for it.  It’s too cute… ??? ??? ??? Ready? Cookie Cutter-ed cookies, Fudge Baby style! Totally fudgey.  Totally delicious.  Totally ADORABLE! Christmas can’t come soon enough! For the Fudge Babies above, […]

The Stress Fracture Sidestep: A Runner’s Dance

Close Call. A few weeks ago, I noticed that my right ankle was purple and swollen. It didn’t hurt, but swelling is never a good sign, right? And purple foods may be fun, but purple feet are another story entirely. “Please go away,” I silently begged the violet puffiness. Oddly enough, it didn’t listen. (Shocking, I know.) Since […]

Make. These. Now.

They’re raw. They’re sinful sinless. They’re delicious… and totally addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I love recreating dessert recipes. But that’s no secret if you’ve read my page: About Chocolate-Covered Katie A few weeks ago, after discovering they’re discontinuing one of my favorite energy bars (Clif Nectar) , I set out to try and recreate said […]

There’s Chocolate In My Banana Brulee

Please forgive me if there are a bazillion typos in this post.  My mind’s not exactly in top shape today.  I usually get about 8 hours of sleep per night, but for some reason I woke up at 2 this morning and could not fall back to sleep. Of course, the harder I tried, the […]

Greens is the word, have you heard?

Greens got meanin’ When I learned—from the Epic Roots Company—about mâche greens (pronounced “mosh”), this new super food quickly jumped onto my list of new foods to try. Mâche greens are pretty impressive. For one thing, they contain Omega 3s. Omega 3s in lettuce??? Yes, one three-ounce serving of mâche greens contains 12% of the RDA […]

Huggies! (No, Not The Diapers)

A blog reader, Jenny, had a really fun idea: She suggested that, for Hug-a-Carb Month, we should all take pictures of ourselves… hugging carbs! Silly? Yes. But life’s way more fun when you’re being silly, don’t you think? My grandma always used to say, “If they’re laughing at me, well then at least they’re laughing!” So, at the risk […]
